It’s so odd that the New Year’s Eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no change in the way the air blows and the birds fly, no change in the way we work and we learn; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.

If only we knew how to convert all days and all nights into New Year’s Eve, wherein even when we party, we do it with the enthusiasm large enough to drive any task to completion. Wherein even if we sleep we do it with the comfort and excitement of the next day. Wherein even if we are alone, there is hope for better days. And wherein even if we pinch ourselves in disbelief, we pray for that happiness to remain.

Here is wishing you a 2006 filled with New Years Eve…each and every day. May all your wishes and plans, work out just the way you wanted them to be. And may the 365 days of 2006 make you realize what an amazing thing life is.
